It wasn't a snake on a plane, but a snake near a train that sent authorities scrambling to SEPTA's University City Regional Rail station Friday morning. A passerby reported seeing a snake in a trash can at the station in the 3100 block of Convention Avenue shortly before 4 a.m., SEPTA spokeswoman Heather Redfern said. The snake was dead, and animal-control officers were called, Redfern said. The snake was coiled up in a brown trash bag, according to a photo on 6ABC's website.

It was a cultural clash unseen even in a city long defined by the confrontational fanaticism of its sports fans: a grande bataille between a trash-talking Eagles fan and an elegant defender of the ballet. And in yet another sign that Philadelphia may be a city in transformation, a city rightly celebrated for much more than sports, a cracked bell, and steak on a roll, the ballet guy owned the Eagles guy.

How to celebrate on Two Street like a local Check out the special performance areas and food trucks at Second and Reed, and Second and Ritner. Mummers also drill in front of their own clubhouses, and serenade other clubs. Arrive early, but not too early. The main action happens between 4 and 9 p.m., after official Mummers judging at City Hall is complete. Stay out of Second Street itself; do not interject yourself into the parade. Stick to the sidewalks; metal barriers will run the length of the Strut.
